A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed a suit filed by the Federal Government, seeking the extradition of a suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Abba Kyari to the United States for trial in an alleged internet fraud.
The trial Judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo while delivering his judgment on Monday said the dismissal was due to a pending court case filed by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA).
Justice Ekwo submitted that Section 3 of Nigeria’s Extradition Law forbids the country to extradite a criminal when there is a pending case against them.
He therefore ruled that the suit was brought in bad faith and was dismissed.
